"Good in theory"

What do you like best?

I like the concept of being able to send money to a friend, but in reality it's another app to download, I don't like having my bank information out there, .... it's just more work than getting cash.

What do you dislike?

I don't like having to manage yet another app and at this point, there are others in the payment game. PayPal and Samsung both make it more top-of-mind and easier to send money to other people. And, someone else has to have Venmo for it to work ... I just don't think it's caught on enough for this to be a really viable option.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try it out. It's easy enough to download and figure out - it's a matter of other people you know using it and for it to catch on to a larger population.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Since few people use or carry cash, it's a nice way to split a check with a colleague and with the app, you can get your money asap, and not worry about the friend not having cash, or 'will pay you later'.

"My Venmo Review "

What do you like best?

I love just about everything Venmo has to offer. It is fast to set up. Easy to transfer money from my Venmo account to my bank account. You can scan an Barcode to instantly friend someone. It’s made the fact that my home business can’t accept debit cards at the moment, very convenient for clients who don’t have time to get cash out.

What do you dislike?

When I signed up I saw there was someone using my photo and name as an account for them, the instant message if to support is very slow, and I have tried twice to have a debit card sent to me and they can’t aeem to deliver it.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great way to get paid and to pay others.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

More clients, more money, they like that they don’t have to have cash but can set this up in 5 min

"Seriously easy way to transfer money!"

What do you like best?

Instantaneous transfer from person to person for any reason.

What do you dislike?

Fees can be a little confusing. It's best to explore who will pay fees and when to avoid confusion.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you need a way to easily transfer money between coworkers or to contract workers or one-off payments, Venmo is an easy, up-to-date way to do just that. No bells or whistles, no nonsense. Highly recommended!

It's worth being aware that marking payments private is necessary if you don't want any or all of your linked contacts to see who you have been paying or who has been paying you. Transaction details are private, but you'll be able to see that your friend Ann paid her coworker Sharon 7 days ago, and that your brother paid Ann even though he swears he doesn't know her.

Explore your privacy options to ensure you're showing only what you want to!

Each transaction has a description field for easy identification later (or jokes.) Once you've been paid, it's easy to transfer money to your linked bank account (1-3 days), or to a selected debit card ($0.25 fee, basically instant.) Your statement will clearly mark the transaction too. Really seamless.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Venmo provides a really easy way to pay a person, which is excellent for paying contractors, repair people, and the like. It's also really easy to split up a work lunch without asking for six separate checks. There's an electronic record that can be matched with bookkeeping needs quickly.

"Easy to Use But Will Phase Out"

What do you like best?

This is nice as you can use venmo to send anyone money internationally. I have used it to pay professors who live in Israel.

What do you dislike?

I feel like these products will phase out in the United States. I like it - but apple pay and google wallet will take over the market. Not to mention the Cash App from Square as well as Facebook pay.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would consider another product. They just rolled out a feature that makes me no longer want to use this product. They took away Desktop payments - which FORCES you to download the app to send or receive money.

It is cool to see the feature of other people in your area and what they have paid for etc. Adds sort of a social element to the app.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was able to use it to pay for a class I took online. Was easy to set-up an account.

"Better alternative to PayPal"

What do you like best?

I like the social presence of this app. It is a creative mix between Twitter and PayPal or Cash App, which appeals to my generation. I love the way you can add words or emojis to amounts you send and receive. I like the option to atomically transfer to your bank account.

What do you dislike?

I do wish it wasn't an extra cost to have the immediate transfer available. It is a little annoying to have to wait 24 hours for an amount to transfer over. Other than that, I really don't dislike anything else. I do think that Cash App is a little more streamlined. I like the simplicity of it better than Venmo. In particular, I like the way when you type in the dollar amount, the typography is large and clear for the amount you're sending.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great alternative to PayPal, and even Cash app if you are desiring to use a more social software. I love that it is free to use as well. I will definitely continue using Venmo into the future.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Venmo has been great in the workplace when it comes to sharing expenses or having to pay for people on the go. The log of what you've sent/received on your profile "timeline" helps to keep track of who you've paid for and need to be reimbursed for, as well as who you owe money. It is a great alternative to lugging around cash.

"Quick and convenient, always reliable."

What do you like best?

I love that I have the option for personal or business use. Venmo has been reliable since day one and is an easy platform to use. I have been able to teach and show others how to use it whether they be clients, friends or family and I've never had anyone have any issues with it!

What do you dislike?

The only thing I could say that I dislike is the the amount of time it can sometimes take for the money to transfer depending on what bank you have. It isn't even that long I can just be impatient when it takes up to two days for the transfer to complete. On the other hand sometimes it transfers in less than 20 minutes!

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Absolutely consider using this platform. I am a private contractor on the side and deal with art, Venmo has helped me tremendously in aiding my cliental through be able to make payments much more easily!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Venmo helps me be able to charge clients without have to utilize a card machine or deal with checks. I can charge my clients up front and see when the money arrives into my account quickly and efficiently.

"Great Way to Send Money"

What do you like best?

It's super easy to find people and quickly send or request payment, no matter who they bank with. It's been instrumental in getting prompt payment from contact clients. I love that I can include the QR code to my profile on my invoices, ensuring that my clients are paying the right person.

What do you dislike?

It would be nice to be able to have money automatically transferred to my bank account rather than having to manually initiate a transfer each time. Finding pay requests is difficult.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Venmo has been a great way for me to collect payments for contract work. Its user-friendly and has wide reach that has made it my primary form of payment.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has made it very easy to get paid for contract work. I no longer have to deal with checks or transfers. Following up on unpaid invoices is easy and efficient as well.

"Venmo Is An Option"

What do you like best?

This app is easy to use but will come with fees when used for business. I would recommend determining what is best for your customers and then going from there. If you are looking for a simple solution this may be a good fit.

What do you dislike?

I wish there wasn't the "convenience tax", but I get it that every service needs to be paid for if it is making life easier for its users.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is a simple service which can make collecting and sending payment from your business much simpler.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The ability to collect payment from customers in a simple/easy to do using the Venmo service. We are no longer needing to manually collect payment information.

"Complete game changer"

What do you like best?

Previously I had to take manual payments for services from customers. One them actually turned me onto Venmo. Now I'm able to take electronic payments via the app, have immediate access to that money and use the stored funds for payments or transfers it to my bank accounts. It's a major change to the way I used to do things.

What do you dislike?

In terms of functionally there's nothing I don't like really but I believe that deposits or transfers over a certain amount are not insured.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's the easiest and yet most valuable application I use. Just read the terms of service fully to make sure it's right for you.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The complete elimination of manual payments, immediate access to cash, and trace-ability of payments.

"Makes Life Easier"

What do you like best?

Venmo is a quick way to pay anyone for anything in a world where carrying cash has become rare. I also like that Venmo has been testing debit cards. Sometimes I have a Venmo balance and would rather use that than my debit or credit card.

What do you dislike?

I don't understand why there is a universal feed of transactions. I think it's kind of strange and unnecessary. The Venmo interface is starting to look a little outdated. I think it's time for an update.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely try it. It makes paying others so easy and prevents you from forgetting to pay people back.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Venmo makes it easy for employees to pay a company for donations, raffles, or other misc items.

"Simple and great"

What do you like best?

Easy-to-use money transfer. This is a platform where network effects matter. The more people using Venmo, the more convenience you'll receive.

The user interface is easy and makes it hard to send money to the wrong person.

What do you dislike?

The default privacy setttings are atrocious. They start with showing all your 'friends' all of your transactions. You can turn this off easily, to protect people from seeing who you transact with. BUT then you'll still need to turn a second button off, as your friends' streams are public and you'll still be public in their stream.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Instant payments between co-workers and the office admin to make networking and cultural event planning easy. Team lunches are easy.

"Venmo- No cash no problem"

What do you like best?

I love the fact that if I do not have cash with me I can easily pay someone with one click of a button and vice versa i know that i can offer to pay for someone and I know I'm going to instantly get my money back.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that there are not many notifications if you need to remind someone to pay you back. You are able to request that someone pay you and get one reminder but if that person does not open their venmo app you are not able to open up another reminder because they have not opened the first one yet.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend that everyone using Venmo set up their account to be connected with their Facebook so that they can easily be found by friends.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When ordering a large sum of a product for a company such as t-shirts it used to take forever for everyone to pay for what they bought especially since not everyone carries around cash anymore. With venmo you can get your money back the day of without putting burden on the person who placed the order.

"The Easiest Way To Pay & Get Paid"

What do you like best?

I absolutely love using Venmo. It's super easy to send and receive money for my contractors or even for personal use when I'm out and about. It takes two seconds and I can even receive money immediately into my bank account for only a quarter. Not to mention there have been so many advances recently that let me shop as well. Would highly recommend to anyone looking fro a money transfer platform for your mobile device.

What do you dislike?

I genuinely can't say that there is anything I would say I dislike because it's been such a great software that I haven't had any issues with.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's free to use and takes only a minute to set up. Take the time to utilize because it is definitely worth it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can pay and get paid within seconds. How much better can that get? Plus, with my Self-Employed Quickbooks and it's personalized notes section, I'm able to clearly indicate for my taxes what each one is for.

"Fast and reliable cash transfer service"

What do you like best?

Venmo is a fast and efficient cash transfer service that makes it easy to share cash with anyone. It also makes it easy to withdraw or deposit cash right from your bank account. What's great about Venmo too is that you can use it on the website or you can use the App on your phone.

What do you dislike?

It defaults to showing all people your transactions but that can be changed in privacy settings. No other problems so far, it's been working great.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Go ahead and try it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Quick personal transactions or quick sales in maybe a garage sale. Forgot your money? No cash on hand? as long as you have your app, no problem!

"Using Venmo On a Daily "

What do you like best?

I love the convenience of the app - not having to ask for routing numbers or ask what bank they have. For a small fee that is worth is for me. I really like the understanding of the app as well.

What do you dislike?

I really can't say I don't like anything - maybe have a free of charge day? Have some type of special that is for certain clients. Maybe a promo Code that will require people who use is for business can get a free day for pleasure.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great Company! Overall Easy to use and would recommend touse anytime, anywhere. Using this for business or travel even with family really does make a big difference. Cash is a thing of the past and this makes everything at your finger tips. I would suggest trying this out for at least a week in order to really feel all the uses that we can get out of this. Thank you!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Having a payment from each client on time and in my bank account without them knowing my personal info. This app eliminates check payments. Helps my customers get their returns faster and employees paid faster. I really do enjoy all the benefits they offer.

"Convenient way to transfer funds!"

What do you like best?

I definitely like the quick transaction time from when I submit a transfer from my Venmo account to my bank account. The simplicity of being able to send a friend or family member money with the convenience of an app makes things a lot easier. A number of small businesses are now accepting Venmo as a form of payment as well, which alleviates the need to carry cash or credit cards.

What do you dislike?

One thing I dislike about Venmo, is how it automatically connects you to your Facebook friends if you sign up with your Facebook account. I like the ease of signing up through Facebook, but I don't want to see transactions from random people.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Again, the simplicity and convenience of using Venmo to send and receive payments is great! I think it's all about convenience, and you don't need any banking information because it's already pre-loaded on your personal Venmo account. It helps that there is no fee per transaction as well.

"Best Way to Transfer Money w/o Chase "

What do you like best?

I like most best out of this app is how simple it is to find, send, and receive money from anyone. This includes those you go out to eat with, how to pay rent, people you don't know, concert tickets, and there are no fees for those transferring to a bank account. It is easy to use, fast, and transfers instantly! You can also use venmo to pay at some places! It is way better than Zelle Pay where you are required to be a chase customer. Also with Zelle pay you have to log in and then dig around for where to pay.

What do you dislike?

I personally have two phones, one for work and one for home. It is very difficult have people send money to one phone number but not be able to log into without changing your phone number. I also dislike that if you send someone money you can't retract the payment without sending an email or calling.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I love this app! I can get payments easy and fast. Venmo is way better than Zelle Pay!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Venmo is solving the issue of getting payments from clients. Not only is it easy to transfer money and receive it. It is pretty easy to get the request money. This takes all the guess work about whether or not I will get paid. Plus it doesn't have any fees for transferring from bank to bank!

"Venmo is so easy!! "

What do you like best?

I love how easy it is to transfer money to someone. As a freelancer, I do a lot of online work for my clients - just about everything I do is online. And in this day an age, you don't want someone to send you a paper check in the mail or cash because anyone can steal it. You also don't want to give some random person you are working for your bank account info to have them send you the money. Venmo is a nice, easy way of exchanging money to someone and doing it safely! You won't see any of their account info and they won't see yours.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I don't like about this site is that it can be hard to request money from some people. Sometimes, a client forgets to pay me so I have to send in a request form for them to pay me, and it takes a couple of business days. It can be really frustrating because sometimes I really need that money and it can take too long for it to go through.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Venmo is super easy. It's pretty straight forward. It does ask for you to put your bank account info in, and for some people, they may be reluctant to do that. But the company is very safe and secure and it's definitely worth it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main business problem that I have solved through Venmo is how my clients can pay me through a safe method. I don't have to worry about them seeing my account in the future, and they don't have to worry about me seeing theirs. And if necessary, I can submit a form for them to pay me for what they owe.

"User Friendly - Business Awkward"

What do you like best?

From a mobile UX perspective - its a great tool. No fees, quick to set-up, money can be sent to contacts via their phone number even if they don't have the app yet. By all means, it seems like the next generation of Paypal

What do you dislike?

Being the next gen Paypal, its not surprising that Paypal purchased Venmo a few years ago. Since the acquisition of BrainTree (parent company) it seems Paypal has been debugging the system or deeming the risk on the platform too great as the options for business use and integration have become marginal.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

As an app for personal use - fantastic! For B2B or business use - wouldn't consider it at the moment.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are trying to build out a brand-solution to reward consumers for purchasing products with payments via Venmo. Building this offer via Paypal was do-able and there are several other digital payment solutions we have managed to integrate with. Venmo unfortunately is not one of them.

Their platform seems to focus on merchants accepting payments via Venmo from customers (not sending payments like we are trying to do). Getting answers and a breakdown of their platform limitations wasn't easy. While setting up payments is supported - the lack of support from Venmo in my experience would make me hesitant to invest.

"Instant fast payments around the office"

What do you like best?

I love how quickly the payments go through and the fact that there is no fee associated with sending money or transferring money into and from a bank account. I also love the scan code feature where you can pay to clients instantly through the scan of a qr code.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that there is no payment protection and you must go through a long claim process should you mis-send a payment or want to do a chargeback.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Best instant payment solution in a mobile app at this time!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Quick easy access to payment solutions, reimbursing other workers around the office and sending money or receiving small amounts of money from clients

"Best tool for travel!"

What do you like best?

We use Venmo to split checks and cover other expenses while on travel for work. It's a great tool for multiple colleagues to use while splitting meals, cabs, and hotel costs. The fact that it's cross platform makes it even better since Android and iOS users can make use of Venmo without any problems.

What do you dislike?

Nothing really, Venmo does everything we need it to.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Set up Venmo before going on travel as it's somewhat difficult to set the bank account information setup while away from home.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Splitting and settling up expenses while on travel for the university. It makes it easier to split checks, cabs, or hotels without carrying extra cash.

"Venmo is fast, convenient, and reliable! "

What do you like best?

I love the ease of use; it's so quick and simple to transfer money, make payments, and check your balance. I also love how widespread it is-- it's hard to find someone who doesn't use Venmo these days; if you don't have it, what are you doing?! Plus, the dashboard where you can see others' messages is a nice feature.

What do you dislike?

There's not much to dislike... It's not my preferred method of making purchases in other apps or websites, but that's mostly a personal preference.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Venmo makes payments super quick and easy, and it's a simple way to keep track of business spending (rather than sorting through bank statements and receipts).

"Venmo, and your done."

What do you like best?

The fact that you can send money via many different ID's to the same person, I.e: Phone number, username, email, etc.

What do you dislike?

Venmo shows what otherwise is private transactions to the public and friends unless you specifically state not to.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use this for both business and for personal use. Watch out wit support as they are hard to get a hold of but after you get them in contact you are taken care of.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For business meetings while going out to lunch I can put the whole lunch tab on my card and still request venmos from all the team instead of using that time to split the check.

"Great App!"

What do you like best?

Venmo is so easy to use and quick to transfer funds to anyone. It is great because you no longer have to worry about others' bank accounts, you just need an email. Plus, most of your contacts probably are already using it!

What do you dislike?

Although the fee is minimal, that is the only thing I dislike. To get funds instantly, a small fee is applied.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Venmo has been convenient way for our guests to pay sporting event entrance fees when cash is not available. It can be used in numerous ways/avenues and is very quick, convenient, and easy to use.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There is little need for handling cash with Venmo.

"Financial transaction module"

What do you like best?

I like Venmo in that you can simply conduct financial transactions in a jiffy, Send and received mobile payments from other users. The ability to use emojii's to state the reason for the transaction and its utilized using any form of card payment.

What do you dislike?

Finding the people that you need to transact with is sometimes a bit of a hassle if the username that have chose is a bit confusing. Should be able to add people and to interact in an instant type of way.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Using Venmo streamlines the financial transaction process, as well as protecting the users privacy but not displaying any user information while transactions are being conducted.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Financial Transactions that can not be conducted utilizing regular payroll. Easy to receive funds to cover invoices should the funds need to be received sooner than later.

"Made bill payment, splitting meals and paying back friends easy!"

What do you like best?

My favorite feature was being able to split bills between roommates. Before Venmo became widely used I had to rely on cash payments or checks. I like that it connects directly to the bank and you can transfer to bank with no charge.

What do you dislike?

I dislike how easy it is to pay the wrong person. It has only happened once and the person thankfully paid me back, but I have heard of people not getting paid back.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Check bank fees before connecting you card. I used one bank over my credit union because it didn't have fees with transactions.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Venmo solves business problems because it allows one to collect money with a trail. You have a feed and you have an email confirmation. We used Venmo for charity collection and it increased the amount of donations because of the ease of use.

"Great for small businesses"

What do you like best?

I love how easy and quick it is to use. It is also international, so it works with a lot of my clients in terms of pay. It is very intuitive to set up and has bright and fun pictures that are calming.

What do you dislike?

I hate how it shows who gives what to whom. You have to specifically go to settings to make it private on each transaction in the business setting. My clients deserve the right to privacy and changing the settings for each transaction is pain.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely recommend it for small businesses. Larger amount of clients would probably benefit from another service.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is a great way to receive payment from clients after tutoring sessions. I can also instantly pay out which is helpful. The benefit is that is so easy to use and walk a client through on the phone.

"Ease of Use is Top Notch"

What do you like best?

I appreciate how easy Venmo is to use - our team uses it almost exclusively to exchange money around for office-wide gifts, sharing food orders, etc. The app is very intuitive!

What do you dislike?

My dislike stems from not being able to attach the same bank account/credit card to two separate Venmo accounts. My husband and I have to share a Venmo account, because we are not allowed to utilize the same account.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would definitely recommend Venmo, although it's difficult with multiple users using the same payment. We, as a team, would never be able to utilize our corporate card all on our separate accounts.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The ability to share business expenses, evenings out for dinner, shared gifts for work colleagues, etc are divine. I appreciate the ease of use and quick response time from your bank whether depositing or pulling funds.

"Venmo is the way to go"

What do you like best?

Venmo is easy to use and is becoming so common among the younger generation. Whether you keep the money in your account or simply transfer it to your bank there is never any wait time to your money.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing I dislike about Venmo that is why I rated it a 10. They have fixed the issue where it took a few days for your money to transfer from your account to your bank and now for .25 cents its an instant transaction.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Look into what your customer and your needs are. If you are dealing with people constantly and do not always want to carry cash Venmo is the easiest solution.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it for every day business. It is quick and easy to use for services dealing with people out in the every day world.

"My current IOU work around."

What do you like best?

The ability to send money simply and easily has made it such an invaluable app when traveling, eating out with friends, etc.

What do you dislike?

There's very little to dislike in my opinion. But if I had to be very critical on a technical level, there are times where my bank would get disconnected for one reason or another. That can get a bit annoying.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When it comes to business use, the ability to send money or receive money from clients has been a huge help, although there are other products that I would primary use for sending funds.

"Venmo is cool but it is surrounded by other options"

What do you like best?

I think what everyone probably likes, is easy to send money from bank account or credit card. A lot of people seem to have it so it works well.

What do you dislike?

I'm not sure I dislike anything. When I first used it I was kind of squeamish about the fact that Venom had an endless stream of peoples transactions but I quickly realized that it was possible to make that private.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is good. It will do what it is supposed to and it has a large number of users so you will be able to transact easily.
